freekyp (1485) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Light brown with little head. Sour nose with hints of pear and apple. Initial taste is sour, which quickly mellows. Resiny throughout, this Belgian Ale finishes quietly, almost fading away. Hops do not play a large part in this beer, taking a back seat to the sweet/sour/maple? mix. A bit thinner than most Belgians I've had, but in a drinkable enticing fashion.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2003
Good maltiness, sweet and not overpowering. Fruity, pears, cotton candy. Golden amber clear with off-white lacing head. Low carb with med-heavy watery body. Taste is sweet and musky. Alcohol, yeast, malt. Low hops. Fruity. Finish has slight bitter, wheat-like. After is bitter-sweet.

badgerben (4399) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2003
The Cellar, St. Andrews. Dark gold color. Smells and tastes of spices. Much better than average, very lovely.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2003 Pours clear dark amber with small off-white head. Good lacing though. Slightly sweet spicy hop aroma with a hint of dark fruits there. Lovely smooth medium mouthfeel. Initial sweet malt taste with a mild bitter middle and dry bitter finish. Aftertaste is bitter yet sweet, almost slightly tangy, with a hint of spice too. Quite tasty. Not as complex as other belgians but very quaffable! Rerate: More plum and rasins in aroma this time. Palate wasnt as full this time either. Finish quite thin. Lost a point on palate, gained one on aroma.

Flipbrewer (33) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 15, 2003
Dark amber with an off-white head; typical "Belgian" aroma (which I perceive as a spicy-floral, fruity, musty-leathery complex of aromas); med-dry maltiness with a mild fruitiness and low key hop bitterness; medium bodied. A refreshing, lower gravity Belgian ale that I like to have when my palate is maxed out on the bigger varieties but still craves the flavor.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 13, 2003
This beer was ok, fairly standard for a Belgian pale ale style. Nice and easy drinking, but nothing to make me feel like I needed another one. I quickly moved on to a duvel that I saw on the menu, you should too.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
imdownthepub (10210) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2003
Bottled, Pasteurised. Deep Amber beer with fluffy lasting white head. Little nose initially, but a spicy, bananaish flavour comes though. There is a malty background and a dry finish, but overall a little thin on flavour.

heykevin (1276) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - AUG 12, 2003
Strightforward light hop aroma. Nice estery yeast profile layered on a fairly solid malt backbone. Good medium strength belgian. If this were on tap @ a local, I would enjoy it regularly.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2003
UPDATED: APR 14, 2004 On draught at Belgian Beer Café Belle Vue, Kiev, Ukraine. Amber color with a fine head. Discrete hoparoma. Nicely balanced in a mix of hops and malt with a fine bitterness.

larsniclas (5607) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2003
Golden with a thick head. A fruity aroma. A wellbalanced beer with a sourish and fruity flavour and some late bitterness.
